Entirely too much. Normally when I veer from my schedule and find myself having empty time.

I am very mindful of what I eat. If I decide I want a dessert, I'm aware of the calories and offset it by not going over as it has to be worth it and only eat until I'm satsified, not full. emoticon

I used to do it a lot now I try to keep track of everything I eat. When I feel upset or stressed out it's harder for me to not eat mondessy

I haven't done it in the past two months, but it used to be a problem. Something I have to work on every day

Made it to my maintenance weight of 125 pounds.

Even though I have reached goal. I still don't know everything about weight loss.

I don't really do that but I sometimes do get very hungry and it's hard not to overeat.

Never. I don't eat mindlessly and I don't eat junk food.

My idea of going way off the rails is something like eating an extra apple...or a day like today when I ate ate entirely healthy stuff but had 90-some carbs instead of the 50-70 that is a healthy range for me.

Dances: salsa (standard/LA), casino, rueda de casino, cumbia Colombiana, bachata, mambo, cha-cha-chá, merengue, reggaetón.

Currently learning: Mexican cumbia, danzón, Cuban rumba

Dances to Learn in the future: flamenco, tango Argentino, samba, belly dancing, bhangra, ballroom rumba

Not any more, but it used to be hard not to do so at work. There is just so much junk sitting around at the office, and I used to walk by and grab a handful of whatever (candies, popcorn, cookies).

In the last 8 days, yes. Someone took $200. out of my checking account. I had to file a Fraud claim at the bank for all the good that will do. They couldn't guarantee me my money back.

My doctor suggested a book called Savor. It is about mindful eating. I bought it and downloaded it to my Kindle Fire. I am reading it and trying to be more mindful every time I eat. It helps me also in slowing down when I am hungry.

Sometimes, but I usually track it. Most of the time I'm pretty careful though and I only rarely buy stuff that isn't healthy.

I NEVER eat mindlessly and never have. I only very occasionally buy something that I wouldn't normally eat, but just because it is there doesn't mean I WILL eat it. It can sit there a couple months before I touch it. When eat something I wouldn't normally it is in the context of my 'planned' diet, as in I give myself permission to eat whatever I want, one day in 2 weeks. It doesn't mean that I WILL eat like that, but I know that it is there if I want to. It takes a lot of pressure off because you haven't got that little 'thing' sitting on your shoulder nagging at you.

I think that those who 'mindlessly eat' need to learn some other way to cope with that 'boredom' etc.

I, too, cannot have junk food in my house. I will go to town, easily. I honestly do not even have that much 'easy to grab snack food' because even then I can binge on triscuits, etc, no problem. If I want a snack in between meals, I have to prepare something..the effort you need to put forth to have a snack helps. It's far too easy to grab a box of crackers and hummus and just sit down and oops, devour half of it. I definitely like the suggestion to put something into a bowl so you can actually see your serving size, etc. The only possible thing I could eat mindlessly and (easily) lose track of is almonds/nuts. If I'm really actually hungry I'll prepare something - otherwise, drink water and occupy yourself elsewhere!

Never.....I only eat when I am hungry during non training days and then when I am in training, I eat every two hours. I agree with BUNNYKICKS with regard to not eating directly from the bag....put it in a bowl and you will be less likely to keep eating after that bowl is finished....make it a small bowl.

Also, never.

Not that I never eat "junk foods" or "too much" of something. I do, sometimes. But I make sure I recognize what I'm doing, and don't try to fool myself into not-noticing-what-i'm-consuming. Like, i snarfed back 3 ounces of chocolate chips yesterday. Not the best choice. But... even as that third handful came out of the bag, it went into the bowl on the scale to be weighed and tracked. No hand-to-mouth straight from the bag. I know what I eat, for better or worse.

Goal 1 - break 200 (46 pounds lost)**DONE**
Goal 2 - leave obesity behind (BMI 29.9, at 185#) **DONE**
Goal 3 - BMI = Normal (154# or less)

Never.

I do not have junk food in my house.

I track everything either before or right after I eat - seeing that number of calories consumed can be sobering.

I am at 850 so far for today - which means that for me to stay on track I can only consume a dinner for 500 calories.

Try tracking your food - it can be a very eye opening experience.

The best exercise in the world is to bend down and help someone up.

It is very easy to eat junk food instead of eating healthy foods. I find myself reaching for the "comfort foods" and mindlessly eating. I need to learn to reach for fruits or veggies instead of chips, ice cream, candy or other unhealthy foods.
